In today's quickly changing pace of online classes in place of in-person classes, we must adjust to new situations and learn those new unspoken rules of webinar etiquette. 

These 5 tips can make your CEU Webinar more enjoyable and productive. 

1. Log in Early - Set a reminder to go off anywhere from 10-30 minutes before the schedule event start time. This will help you find a stopping point to what you are currently doing, transition to find the online link, code and password to input and will give yourself time to download the software if you do not already have it installed. If you already have it installed, the time before the webinar will give you a chance to write down any questions you may want answered during the webinar.

2. Mute your audio If you are joining a large webinar, some presenters may ask that your audio. This is helpful to avoid unwanted background noises that can distract other participants. 
3. Remember, there is a camera facing you - Most computers, tablets or phones allow access to the camera to show your face while upon joining a webinar. This can come as a surprise to others if at any point during the webinar you get up and show all of the attendees you're wearing a #ZoomMullet - business on top, party on the bottom.

4. Be active in the Q&ARespond to questions or comments just like you would in-person. If there is something you want to know, but do not want to disrupt the presenter, put it in the chat so at the end, if the presenter hasn't touched on the subject at all, they know that is something they need to discuss.

5. Provide Feedback - It can be hard for the host to tell how the experience was from the attendee's viewpoint. Help us improve our webinars to match your needs by letting us know what worked well and what didn't. Were there any audio problems? Presenter going too fast? Are there topics you would like to see us cover? Let us know so we can work towards providing great content for you and your company! Email us at [email protected]exaspest.org
